The problem with crooked teeth

Contrary to popular belief, few people are born with perfect teeth. And, even if you are, they can still change with time. 

Common causes of crooked teeth include:

Unfortunately, along with negatively impacting your smile, misaligned teeth can also cause more dental problems. For example, if your top teeth and bottom teeth don’t meet properly, you can develop uneven wear on some of your teeth. Crooked teeth can also cause problems with cleaning your teeth, speaking, headaches, jaw problems, and even affect your self-esteem.

Getting results with Invisalign

The good news is that you can get straighter teeth at any age with Invisalign. And, it’s discreet at the same time. This modern teeth-straightening system also helps you to get straighter, more beautiful teeth far quicker than it would take with traditional braces. 

With Invisalign, you get a series of custom-made clear, plastic aligners, and each set provides a small adjustment. Every few weeks, you stop using one set and start with the next in the treatment series. When you take out your last set, your teeth treatment is finished, and you’ll have perfectly aligned teeth. 

During your treatment, you should wear your aligners for 20-22 hours a day. You can take them out to eat, brush your teeth, and floss. You can also remove them for special occasions. But, with Invisalign’s clear plastic design, most people won’t even know you’re wearing them anyway, unless you tell them.

What to expect with Invisalign

First, our team performs a dental examination and discusses your goals to see if Invisalign is right for you. Then, if you proceed, they take digital scans of your teeth.

The Invisalign system uses state-of-the-art software to analyze the scans. This technology also helps plan each stage of your treatment by mapping out the locations of your teeth and where they should go. With this software, you can also see exactly what your new and improved smile will look like before you even start your treatment.

After creating your treatment strategy, our team can send them to a lab where your aligners are created. 

Treatment times can vary with Invisalign, but most patients finish within 6-18 months.

What sets Invisalign apart from other options

Our team loves Invisalign for teeth-straightening because it’s:

Plus, even if you weren’t born with perfectly straight teeth, Invisalign can get you the smile you’ve been dreaming of, and the confidence that can come with it.
